#3471792 How Much Bp Should I Be Using In 2Nd Week?

Posted by Geeking on 16 February 2015 - 02:14 AM

Finger length for the whole face. Depending on your tolerance/progress thus far, I'd up my dose for only mornings for the week or so and then twice a day, but once again that depends on how sensitive your face is.




#3469543 Nothing At All?

Posted by Geeking on 26 January 2015 - 06:57 PM

Only way to tell is to try not using anything for a few months, see how you end up.
By the way, what are peroxide treaments? sounds scary!




#3469542 Anyone Using Aha+ Only?

Posted by Geeking on 26 January 2015 - 06:54 PM

I've begun using [a very small amount] of AHA mixed w/moisturizer twice daily for about 2 weeks maybe as part of the regimen and I haven't noticed any new breakouts or redness, I think it is helping keep things calmer, even though I still breakout around my mouth.. a lot. I am pretty sensitive & light complected so if I use too much I do suffer from major redness, if that helps.

also, some days I skip mornings and only do it once.




#3467931 Shipping Within Us

Can't be more than a week once shipped, you will probably get a more accurate response if you asked customer service within the Store site on upper right corner.




#3466161 The Dkr Regimen For Mild Acne

Posted by Geeking on 01 January 2015 - 01:02 AM

I believe that comes with experience w/the regimen, either way you start out with a small amount - you just have to figure out what works for you.

but here's to 2015 and accepting our skin and not giving up!




#3463943 Will Doxycycline Get Rid Of My Severe Acne?

Posted by Geeking on 14 December 2014 - 10:39 PM

I was on an antibiotic before, I think doxy and broke out really bad straight away - probably varies for people. Give any treatment 3-4 months to see final results :)
Your breakouts will likely subside unless you've unknowingly introduced something to exacerbate your acne.




#3462046 Anxiety And Stress Making My Skin Worse...

Posted by Geeking on 01 December 2014 - 01:21 AM

Stress is really difficult to manage. I have anxiety and that doesn't help me out, so I haven't found a fool proof way to destress.
Though I do like to listen to meditations, or audios that say y'know 'breath in.. think about ___ .. you're floating on a river..' that kind of hokey stuff, actually does calm me down.

Stay hydrated, esp since you work out - working out they say helps people decompress. Focus on your upcoming time off!




#3458974 Becoming More Confident And Self-Loving?

Posted by Geeking on 06 November 2014 - 10:34 PM

Whatever you're feeling is real and true to you. Acne is the worst and really makes you only see the bad things in life. The important thing is to keep going, maybe make adjustments to your routine to try and help with your dryness, be hopeful - and like the above poster, focus on things you enjoy, that makes you happy or at least take your mind off your skin. You can feel bad/sad/angry about your skin, just try to not let those emotions completely take over.




#3458973 Aha, Glycolic, & Jojoba Oil

Posted by Geeking on 06 November 2014 - 10:26 PM

Jojoba is for dryness, redness, and smoothing, AHA/GA is for helping with complexion/smoothing. [Linked to acne.org product description.]

For under eye dryness, it would help me when I first started BP to put some moisturizer under my eye area so I wouldn't apply bp too closely. Also stay hydrated! That keeps your skin from getting dry as well.




#3455565 Can I Scratch My Face And Use Water To Pet My Face T_T

Posted by Geeking on 11 October 2014 - 10:55 PM

I would apply another round of moisturizer of your choice if you're that itchy, and alternate bp if you're finding it too harsh at the start - using a small amount once a day for about a week and then going from there.




#3452662 The Regimen

Posted by Geeking on 18 September 2014 - 10:46 PM

That photo is quite blurry and far away to make any real comments, but have you slowly incorporated more product into the regimen? Like, you didn't just start with one/two pumps straight away? - Major redness/irritation is caused by too much too quickly. Have you tried adding jojoba oil to help with irritation? It's standard to give a new routine at least 3 months to figure out if it's for you.




#3451359 People Point Out My Makeup

Posted by Geeking on 10 September 2014 - 12:35 AM

What awful people. Try and surround yourself with people outside of class/wherever that won't judge you and say dumb things like that.
As long as you're more comfortable/confident in your makeup routine, that's what matters.

focus on the good things, any good things, even just one thing going on in your life is acne is getting to much of a heavy burden.
